Wound Care and Lymphedema Management
Small cuts and scrapes can sometimes turn serious. If you are older or have certain health problems, such as diabetes or kidney disease, even small injuries can become a problem.
A wound that won't heal is called a chronic wound. Proper wound care is important to prevent more serious problems, such as infections that spread throughout your body.
If you develop a chronic wound, you and your doctor can choose from many treatments available at Memorial Hermann, including hyperbaric medicine.
Lymphedema is a chronic condition characterized by swelling of the patient’s extremities. Patients who have this condition often encounter difficulty with movement, infection and limb disfigurement. Learn more about lymphedema management.
